Aliens. Zombies. Ghosts. Yes, there’s craziness aplenty to be found in horror-anthology sequel V/H/S/2, as you might expect from a project whose directors include Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), and Adam Wingard (the forthcoming, not-to-be-missed You’re Next). But for this writers’ money, the hands-down loopiest tale arrives courtesy of Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre) and Gareth Huw Evans (much-admired action flick The Raid). Entitled Safe Haven, the Indonesia-set short movie concerns a documentary crew and its horribly doomed attempt to interview an apocalypse-cult leader at his compound. We’ll reveal no more plot-wise — except to add that you’ve never seen anything like it.

The Dark Knight actor Eric Roberts has been cast in Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence). Franchise producer Ilona Six confirmed that the star, who was Oscar-nominated for playing an escaped convict in 1985’s Runaway Train, will appear in the third film of the notorious horror series.
Roberts’ other notable credits include 1983’s Star 80, the following year’s The Pope of Greenwich Village, and The Expendables. Six also confirmed that Tommy “Tiny” Lister (Friday), Robert LaSardo (Death Race), and former porn actress (and former Charlie Sheen paramour) Bree Olson will make their Centipede debuts in the movie. They join a cast that already features returning villains Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey and the series’ writer-director Tom Six.
The Human Centipede is, of course, the infamous and much-parodied franchise in which people are, let us say, affixed together to form a single alimentary canal. The third movie is currently being shot in California and will reportedly feature a 500-person centipede.

We wouldn’t want to give the impression that V/H/S/2 is an entirely laugh-free zone. But this apocalyptically-minded horror anthology sequel certainly takes a more serious approach to the end of the world than out-and-out apocalypse comedies like the recently released It’s A Disaster and the forthcoming This Is The End.
V/H/S/2 — which features sections overseen by Hobo with a Shotgun filmmaker Jason Eisener and You’re Next director Adam Wingard, among others — will be available on demand on June 6 and arrives in cinemas July 12. You can check out the gory, offensive, and just plain weird, red-band trailer below. READ FULL STORY

Director Edgar Wright recently told this writer that his new movie The World’s End is “definitely in the realm of social science fiction.” What does that involve in practice? Well, judging by the film’s international teaser trailer, it involves Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, a pub crawl, Primal Scream’s blissed-out dance-rock classic “Loaded,” a bunch of sinister folks with glowing eyes and mouths, and a gag involving a fence which will be warmly appreciated by fans of the two previous entries in Wright, Pegg, and Frost’s so-called “Cornetto trilogy” (2004’s Shaun of the Dead and 2007’s Hot Fuzz).
What else could you want on a Wednesday morning?

As news spread Tuesday that Ray Harryhausen had died at age 92 there was an especially emotional reaction from sci-fi, horror and fantasy filmmakers — a community with a deep and formative affection for the old-school effects wizard and the work he did on films such as The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad and Clash of the Titans (1981). EW reached out to some signature names in those circles on Tuesday to frame the legacy of Harryhausen and by phone and email they responded with praise for a departed master.
J.J. Abrams, director, producer and screenwriter (Star Trek Into Darkness, Lost): “He was, obviously, a genius, infinitely ahead of his time. He inspired us all with his skill and imagination, and will be missed.”
Teasers for teasers of trailers: They’re so hot right now!
The latest YA adaptation to perpetuate this trend is Ender’s Game, the highly anticipated sci-fi adventure based on Orson Scott Card’s beloved novel. Stars Asa Butterfield (Ender Wiggin) and Harrison Ford (Hyrum Graff) are on hand to introduce this 10-second sneak peek at footage that appears in the real teaser trailer, which will on May 7. Even though it’s slight, fans will be thrilled to get a glimpse at Ford’s growling colonel, Ender and his fellow cadets, and Ben Kingsley’s Mazer Rackham in action. Battle school is in session, people. Well, almost:
